Bosch Dishwasher Repairs:
Bosch is one of those dishwasher brands that often has questions about its operation and repairs. This is partly because of the way that the Bosch dishwashers work, particularly dry. Unlike most other brands of dishwashers that are out there, Bosch doesn’t use the standard heating element to dry the dishes. It uses another method that pulls moisture off of the dishes by condensing the water on the back wall. Almost all Bosch dishwasher models will use this method. The problem with this method is it can often leave the dishes still damp, or even wet when the cycle ends. So, if your dishwasher repair question is related to the dishes drying, that may be the cause for wet dishes. If you have another concern however, there are more things that could be wrong with your dishwasher.
There are actually two major components of a dishwasher than can cause problems and lead to Bosch dishwasher repair. One of these is the timer motor. This is the part of the dishwasher that causes the cycles to start and end. When this part starts to go or is set wrong, you may encounter washing and/or cycle times taking an incredibly long time, or getting over so fast the dishes are still dirty. Other problems with this part could lead to the dishwasher never draining and possibly overfilling. Each of the problems could be caused by something else, but if you clean the drain out and the selector switch is working fine, your timer motor is probably the culprit. This is something that can be replaced at home, but you may want to have a professional take a look at it if the dishwasher is fairly new because it might be able to be a quick, cheap and easy fix.
The other major component of Bosch dishwasher repair is the sprayer arm. This also can lead to dirty dishes, or dishes with soap still on them. You will want to make sure that all of the holes are clear of buildup and aren’t being blocked by any large dish or pan that you are trying to fit in the dishwasher.
Another fairly common problem is rusting inside the dishwasher. Many times this can ruin the cleaning cycles, so you will want to take care of this. If the racks are rusty, you may want to consider replacing them. Often times appliance shops will have older or used ones they will sell you cheap. You will also want to clean the entire inside with oxalic acid.
